In the aviation community, there's a thing known as the $100 burger. Basically people just jump into a plane, fly somewhere and get a burger. $100+ once you account for the airtime on the engine.

Looks like the "MAID-Rite sandwich which I drive 140 miles for, when I visit my son in IOWA. I've be enjoying them for 65 years and never tire of them. Ed

Love fast food (in moderation, I.,e., once a month or so)

I know you werent quoting me, but I will add that: some local places have MUCH better food than fast food joints, AND they offer takeout. I usually crave Taco Bell when I want junk food, but its more of an impulse, Ive done good and deserve this immediate gratification kinda thing. Theres a place nearby that has really tasty taquitos for a few bucks more than the equivalent amount of Taco Bell.

I honestly cant remember where I was on travel to, but we stopped as a group at a smash burger. We were all tired and it really hit the spot! Pricier than Five Guys, from what I recall, but with premium condiments. I think I got a burger with mushrooms and truffle oil and some fancy cheese?

I would drive three miles for a Smash Burger over a Five Guys burger, but would go out of my way by 10-15 min if we were traveling near one.

I could be wrong, but the burger in the OP looks no better than what I could make at home with some angus ground beef, a little bit of spice and some sauce for extra flavor. I kinda feel the same way about steaks when I go out to regular places. Id rather get something I wouldnt normally have or be able to make at home when I go out. shrug

The Wichita, Kansas-based chain Nu Way Cafe serves a version of the tavern/loose meat sandwich called a "Nu Way".[8] In Illinois, the sandwich is also known as a "loose hamburger sandwich".[9] In Iowa, it is sometimes referred to as a Maid-Rite."

This is too funny. I had only encountered the term previously in Garrison Keillor's delightful book Lake Wobegon Days. The passage in question reads something like this:

"So we left Phil's House of Good Food and walked across town to a diner and ate Maid-Rites, a sort of Sloppy Joe, for 15 cents each, but they did not agree with us, and we were aware of them throughout Young People's."

For what it's worth, I believe this scene was set in St Cloud, Minnesota.

Driving from Tampa to La. we stopped at that WHATABURGER. Before we got to Mobile it was trying to exit. Need I say more.
I wouldn't mind trying one of these 100 year old grease burgers.
